In this 1-day workshop, students will create an underlayer using a variety of mediums focusing on having a good distribution of values. Students can bring in their own piece of flora/fauna or choose from a provided one.

The process will include drawing in chalk or water soluble crayon as an underlayer, painting of negative space, and lastly, adding collage and paint to the artwork to add visual interest and to highlight areas of the revealed image from the underlayer.
